Summary

Linux is a free computer operating system that was created by Linus Torvalds in 1991 and has grown from contributions from software developers all over the world. Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise versions of Red Hat Linux are distributions of Linux that package together the software needed to run Linux and make it easier to install and use.

This book specifically describes Fedora 13 and 14, and a complete version of Fedora 14 is included on the DVD that comes with this book. In addition, this book includes the Fedora 14 Desktop Edition Live CD to allow you to try out Fedora on your computers prior to installing the operating system to your hard disk. Fedora includes cutting-edge Linux technology that is slated for inclusion in commercial Red Hat Linux systems. You can get different “spins” of Fedora (both live and install CDs) from the Internet or from distributions that come with books such as this one.
